Word. Excel. Outlook. Knowledge of these computer programs is essential in today’s workplace. Women in the Begin Anew Computer and Job Skills track learn these programs and more. They learn job skills such as resume writing, interviewing, job-searching, and networking as well as life skills like managing finances, setting goals, and making decisions.
In addition, the students participate in mentoring and a weekly Bible study offered on site. Our holistic program offers students the opportunity to grow socially, emotionally, spiritually, and economically.
These dedicated students attend classes for nine months and must complete all the required coursework to graduate from our Computer and Job Skills program. Many of our graduates go on to find meaningful employment, enjoy increased satisfaction in their work, obtain a promotion, or receive an increase in wages because of their newly-acquired skills.
Computer and Job Skills is just one of Begin Anew’s many programs designed to empower individuals to overcome the obstacles caused by poverty. Do you know someone who would benefit from enrolling at Begin Anew? How about someone who wants to volunteer as a computer teacher? We are always excited to welcome new students and volunteers to make a forever difference in our program.
